Desinature presents the nature-inspired Lily Lampshades, designed by Etienne Esmenjaud, who is also the founder of the UK-based design collective. The reversible lampshade turns your interiors into a flowery lounge with petals that can be re-assembled at any time – giving you the opportunity to create your very own light-flower. Depending on whether you want a subtle light or a bright shine – you can adjust the colors to be on the inside or the outside.
